Launch of €5 Million EU Horizon DigiBatt battery research project.

As partner of the DigiBatt consortium, Corvus is pleased to share the press release announcing the launch of this significant EU Horizon research project. The full pressrelease can be downloaded from the bottom of this page.

The groundbreaking project aims to reduce the cost and time to market for new batteries by combining traditional battery testing methods with state-of-the-art digital techniques. The project will first of all standardize, automate and accelerate the battery testing process with several novel approaches to develop:

  1. Standard semantic data models for battery testing, which can be read and understood by both humans and machines.
  2. A digital-twin infrastructure linking experimental testing rigs with simulation-based virtual testing workflows and allowing for automatic triggering of tests.
  3. Data-driven approaches to support the intelligent design of experiments and tailored testing workflows.
  4. Reliable new models for predicting battery lifetime and safety within system-level infrastructure.

Results are expected to streamline testing workflows, enhance the quality of results, and make digital battery testing accessible to the broader battery community by developing open-source solutions.

The DigiBatt consortium brings together world-leading institutions: SINTEF Research Institute (lead and coordinator), DLR (German Aerospace Center), Vrije University Brussels, Virtual Vehicle Research, Corvus Energy (battery system supplier), Forschungszentrum Juelich, AVL, FREYR (battery cell manufacturer) and The University of Oxford.
